Drink a Little Beer

Album: Life Changes (2017)
  • Drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight

    Got a Tennessee girl, a Rocky Top breeze
    And a big ol' yellow moon
    A new set of strings on my '69
    And a Yeti full of iced-down booze
    Everybody 'round this sleepy little town
    Heading down Pinetucky Road
    Gonna leave our worries in a cloud of dust
    Right there by the old fence post

    Yeah, we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    A bunch of down home boys and some blue jean girls
    Kicking up the dirt and shooting out the lights
    Life can be an ol' briar patch
    Gotta dance your way through it sometimes
    So we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight

    Got a pig in the ground, stars in the sky
    And a jar full of lightning juice
    Got a worn-out path to the river bank
    Everybody coming out of them boots
    Gonna pick a few songs all night long
    Ones that we grew up on
    Some fishing in the dark, some Copperhead Road
    Everybody just sing along

    And we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    A bunch of down home boys and some blue jean girls
    Kicking up the dirt and shooting out the lights
    Life can be an ol' briar patch
    Gotta dance your way through it sometimes
    So we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight

    Yeah, we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    A bunch of down home boys and some blue jean girls
    Kicking up the dirt and shooting out the lights
    Life can be an ol' briar patch
    Gotta dance your way through it sometimes
    So we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    Yeah, we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    A bunch of down home boys and some blue jean girls
    Kicking up the dirt and shooting out the lights
    Life can be an ol' briar patch
    Gotta dance your way through it sometimes
    So we're gonna drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight

    Drink a little beer, play a little music
    And have a big time tonight
    That's right

    Come on, boys, whoo
    This is so weird having my dad on a song right now
    Considering he's 50
    Uh, 47
    I think he's gonna make a comeback album and this is the start of it
    I taught you everything you know, son
    But not everything I know
    We through playing now Writer/s: RHETT AKINS, JESSE FRASURE, BEN HAYSLIP
